We actually hit 67 degrees here so Hubby and I jumped right on getting a raised garden bed built.
I can’t believe the price of lumber. The box is 20 ft long and 5 ft wide.
The lumber was on sale and still cost $70.
The area is where I had my Garden In a Bag last year. (You can see that by clicking the link)
I decided I wanted something more permanent, and eye pleasing.
We have all the top soil on site. We stockpiled what was dug out of the pond and will use it for our other garden areas.
Luckily we have the equipment to move it. I’m not sure if I would be so eager if I had to do it all by hand with a wheelbarrow.
My plan it to plant my herb garden and my strawberry patch in the box.
It will be nice to step out our back door and be welcomed by the scent of fresh herbs and strawberries.
I plan on putting in a huge vegetable garden this year and would love for it all to be raised beds but not so sure I want to incur the huge expense.
Who knows after I plant the orchard I may decided raised beds are easier and go for it.
